Southern Tire Mart at Pilot Flying J will offer a free Safe & Road-Ready Checkup inspections, through the Southern Tire Mart at Pilot Flying J Truck Care program through May 6, 2021. The company is reminding professional motor carriers and drivers of the importance of proactive vehicle preventative maintenance and driver readiness in preparation for the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s (CVSA) International Roadcheck event May 4-6.

Launched in early 2021, Southern Tire Mart joined forces with Pilot Company creating a new strategic alliance leveraging the strength and convenience of Pilot and Flying J Travel Centers, as well as the tire, oil change and maintenance expertise and Southern Tire Mart.

“Our goal is to create an exceptional driver experience. The 72-hour CVSA Roadcheck event is a vital time for our drivers, and Southern Tire Mart at Pilot Flying J is here to ensure that every vehicle we inspect is safe, well-maintained, and road-ready” says John Boynton, president of Southern Tire Mart at Pilot Flying J. “By conducting our Safe & Road-Ready Checkup, our drivers can be prepared for the CVSA Roadcheck.”

The Safe & Road-Ready Checklists are heavily focused on the inspection of the vehicle’s brakesystem, air system, tires, and lighting to ensure that vehicles are compliant with regulations.

Performing proper and regular inspections will help ensure mechanical fitness and reduce the likelihood of receiving a violation.
